Vaser® Liposcultping (IN ASSOCIATION WITH DR HENRI CLAASSEN)
Vaser® liposculpting is an advanced body-contouring procedure used to remove unwanted deposits of fat from specific areas of the body. These areas include the face and neck, upper arms, chest (man boobs), upper and lower back, abdomen, buttocks, hips, inner and outer thighs, knees, calves and ankles.
Vaser uses high frequency ultra-sonic vibrations in order to assist in the breakdown and physical removal of fat from the body. A small probe is inserted into the treated area. This probe transmits the ultrasound energy to break up or liquify the fat. The liquified fat is then removed through a gentle aspiration process. It is performed in a sterile theatre environment under conscious sedation.
Unlike the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction, Vaser liposculpting differentiates targeted fat from other important tissues- such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. It breaks up fat while preserving these other important tissues to promote smooth results and rapid healing. Downtime is shorter than with traditional liposuction and is also less invasive.
There are two types or levels of Vaser Lipscuplting available to the patient:
- Vaser HD body sculpting
- Vaser 4D body sculpting
Depending on the definition chosen or desired by the patient, so too will the outcome vary. The prices on these two procedures also differ.
FAQ on Vaser Liposuction
If you are frustrated by the resistance of certain body areas to diet and exercise, VASER Lipo can provide a solution. If you are healthy and seeking a fast, low-pain solution to losing stubborn fat deposits, the VASER Lipo procedure can assist.
This is a common misperception. Following your VASER Lipo procedure, should you experience weight gain or loss, it will tend to be proportionately distributed over your entire body. Once you have fat removed, it is gone. This is, however, dependent on tending to a healthy lifestyle of proper diet and exercise, whereby it will not return or migrate. One must note that because fat is necessary to a healthy body, some essential fat layers in any given area will remain untreated. If you do gain a significant amount of weight, the remaining fatty tissue will expand. Normal aging changes can also be expected.
This varies with the extensiveness of the procedure—the amount of fat removed, the number of areas treated, and so on. Many patients report that they see results immediately after the procedure with the final result at around 3 to 6 months. It is important that you establish realistic expectations through discussion with your doctor.
